To renew the certificate you have to create the CSR and then submit it to gogaddy. They will provide you with new certificate and you can complete the request.

Press the WIndows + R key > type in mmcOK > click File in the MMC window that appears > Add/Remove Snap-in > select Certificates on the left pane > click Add in the middle> select Computer accountNext > Local computer when prompted > Finish > OK

Now expand CertificatesPersonal certificate store and see if the certificate which you recently renewed is in there. If it is I would export the certificate (as a backup) then delete it. Try completing the certificate request again through Exchange.

In addition to the above from VB ITS. You have to import the intermediate certificate in import certification authorities. Once you complete the activity. You have to assign the services SMTP, IIS, IMAP and POP3 from Exchange console to the new certificate

Double click on the certificate with the Pending status and then take a screenshot and post it here please. I would like to have a look at the issuer for the pending certificate but it's cut off from the above screenshot.

That looks like a self-signed certificate. Did you renew this certificate with GoDaddy?

Yes it is a go daddy one

If you're talking about the certificate in your most recent screenshot then it's not a Go Daddy certificate.

Go Daddy certificates will say Issued by: Go Daddy Secure Certificate Authority or something along those lines.

Yours says it was issued by hosting.linkitsupport.co.uk which I assume is the DNS name of your server. Use the steps in my post earlier and verify that there's a certificate from Go Daddy in there. Otherwise you will need to re-download the certificate from Go Daddy.

what I have done is right clicked the original cert and clicked renew - this then created the new Pending cert signing request then I click complete pending and select the cert that I have downloaded from go daddy.

but as you say when I double click the cert pending it says it is not a go daddy cert even though I selected that cert???

Follow the steps in this link to renew a SSL certificate for Exchange 2010 with Go Daddy: http://stevehardie.com/2013/10/how-to-renew-a-godaddy-exchange-2010-ssl-certificate/

The post was written last year but the steps should be largely the same.
